Discussion: 7-zip

This is an official discussion thread linked from the www.privacytools.io website. This thread can be used for troubleshooting, questions, discussions and if you look for alternatives.


In relation to file compression utilities, people were using a key generator for the widely known program WINRAR, so they could avoid paying in order to remove the notifications about their “free trial”.

Otherwise I do enjoy 7-zip for my laptop running Windows 10 Home.

i use default archive in my linux with AESCrypt or PGP

Use PeaZip

Why peazip has been delisted?

Few reasons, mentioned in #1782

  • Site doesn’t support TLS v1.2 which is now required in most browsers
  • Depends on deprecated libraries on Linux Qt4, and GTK2
  • Source is not in version control (but neither is 7-zip
  • Packages for Linux in no distribution repositories
  • Developer was non-responsive to emails I sent (that could have something to do with what is going on in the world currently though).

Is this even possible? Maybe internal they use git or similar software, but don’t publish it?
